Tommy Joseph posted a single, double, walk and an RBI in Tuesday's road game against the Angels.
Joseph is up to 22 doubles with 54 RBI, and both marks are second on the team. He continues to be fairly consistent at the dish lately after a slow start, but with the Phillies well out of contention and prospect Rhys Hoskins knocking on the door, don't be surprised to see Joseph take a bit of a back seat in the final month.

Tommy Joseph went 3-for-4 with two RBI against the Braves on Monday.

Joseph was up and down early this year, but he's been steady of late, with his OPS staying mostly in the .750-.780 range these last 2 1/2 months. It's created something of a holding pattern; he hasn't been good enough to get anyone to dismiss the talk of Rhys Hoskins overtaking him, but neither has he given the Phillies a big excuse to make the switch. We still imagine they'll want to take a look at Hoskins before the season ends, which is bad news for Joseph, since neither can really do anything besides play first base.

Tommy Joseph launched a three-run homer as the Phillies defeated the Braves on Friday night in Philadelphia.

Joseph's three-run shot was the third homer that the Phillies hit during a seven-run uprising in the fifth inning. He finished the evening 1-for-4 and is now hitting .253/.311/.459 with 16 homers and 51 RBI on the season.

He doubled twice, including one in the sixth inning that drove home Nick Williams and Aaron Altherr. He scored twice by trotting home on Cameron Rupp longballs. Joseph is slashing .253/.312/.453 with 15 homers and 48 RBI in 372 plate appearances.

Tommy Joseph had a two-run double in Friday’s victory over the Brewers.

The Phillies had a one-run cushion before Joseph provided some insurance in the sixth inning. It was a long time coming for the 26-year-old, who had driven in just one run over his previous 14 games combined. Joseph is batting .249/.310/.449 with 15 home runs and 45 RBI through 89 games on the year.

Jim Salisbury of CSN Philadelphia reports that the Phillies could be looking to move first baseman Tommy Joseph prior to the trade deadline.

The Phillies want to clear a path for Rhys Hoskins at the big league level, and that can't happen with Joseph blocking the way. Phillies' manager Pete Mackanin alluded to as much, "They can't coexist on the same team... It wouldn't be fair to either guy. It wouldn't be fair to us. It wouldn't be fair to Tommy... I don't think it would help either guy or us to find out about Rhys Hoskins if he is not playing on a regular basis."

Tommy Joseph went 2-for-3 and drew a walk in Saturday's loss to the Padres.

He reached base three times, including a seventh-inning double, but was left stranded every time. Joseph has been a solid fantasy contributor so far this season, slashing .255/.317/.472 with 15 homers and 43 RBI.
Jul 8 - 7:22 PM

Tommy Joseph went 2-for-2 with a double, a home run and two walks in a loss to the Padres on Friday.

Joseph was the only Phillies hitter who seemed to have Padres starter Clayton Richard's number, doubling off him in the second inning and hitting a solo bomb in the fourth. Joseph now has 15 homers and 43 RBI on the year. He's hitting .251/.311/.467 through 80 games.
Jul 8 - 1:32 AM

Tommy Joseph went 0-for-4 with a pair of strikeouts in Tuesday's loss to the Pirates.

He was hardly the only one to blame with the Phillies getting shut out. But, Joseph is now hitting .167 over his last 13 games and his season line is down to .245/.303/.442. He does have 14 homers and 42 RBI, but you've got to wonder at what point Philly will consider pushing Joseph aside to get a look at Rhys Hoskins.
Jul 4 - 7:46 PM

Tommy Joseph went 2-for-5 with a home run, four RBI and two runs scored in a loss to the Mets on Saturday.

He doubled home Aaron Altherr in the fifth, then launched a three-run bomb off reliever Fernando Salas in the seventh inning to give the Phillies what they thought was a comfortable lead, although it didn't hold up in the end. Joseph has been a serviceable fantasy first basemen this year. He has a .249 batting average with 14 home runs and 42 RBI. It is his first year as a full-time starter following the departure of Ryan Howard.
Jul 1 - 9:27 PM

Tommy Joseph cracked a game-tying solo home run in the ninth inning of Wednesday's win over the Mariners.

Joseph socked a no-doubt solo shot off Edwin Diaz to lead off the ninth inning, tying up the game in the process. The Phillies would later pick up a go-ahead RBI single from Andrew Knapp and go on to win 5-4. For his part, Joseph is now hitting .250/.312/.449 with 13 homers and 38 RBI in 72 games played. He has gone yard in three of his last six games.
Jun 28 - 8:28 PM

Tommy Joseph had a homer and a two-run single Thursday in the win over the Cardinals.

Joseph was hitting a modest .273/.309/.403 with two homers this month after his fine May. He hasn't been one of the Phillies' big problems this year, but if he doesn't step it up again, the team could look at prospect Rhys Hoskins in his place in the second half.
Jun 22 - 4:05 PM

Tommy Joseph went 2-for-4 as his team was shut out by the Cardinals on Saturday.

He collected half his club's hits in the lopsided ballgame. The 25-year-old is having a decent season, although a slow start has him trailing the rate stats he compiled in his rookie campaign a year ago. He is batting .255/.306/.464 with 10 homers and 29 RBI.
Jun 10 - 5:38 PM

Tommy Joseph hit a solo home run and delivered a walk-off single in the bottom of the ninth to beat the Reds on Saturday.

His single to center field scored Aaron Altherr with the winning run in dramatic fashion. He homered off veteran Bronson Arroyo earlier in the game. Joseph was brutally bad in the month of April but has turned his season around of late. For the season he is batting .255/.313/.476 with eight home runs and 24 RBI. That slash line is very close to the .257/.308/.505 line he yielded in his promising rookie campaign a year ago.
May 27 - 7:39 PM

Tommy Joseph had a homer in the seventh and a walkoff single in the 11th to give the Phillies a 2-1 victory over the Rockies on Thursday.

Aaron Altherr has been the Phillies' best hitter this year, but Joseph has been the best his month; he's hitting .329 with six homer in May. It makes one wonder why he was hitting sixth today behind three hitters with OPSs in the .600s.
